Aibonito Travel Guide


Legend has it that Aibonito got its name when a Spaniard exclaimed "Ay, que bonito!" ("Oh, how pretty!") upon seeing the valley where the town now stands. At 1,896 feet above sea level, it's Puerto Rico's highest city. Aibonito is known as "The Queen of Flowers" because flowering plants thrive in its temperate climate. The city hosts a flower festival every year, usually in late June or July, and gives awards for blossoms and garden design. Live music and craft stalls add to the festivities. A double-steepled cathedral graces the charming town square, which is surrounded by shops and restaurants. Local guides organize outings to nearby Cañon de San Cristóbal.
